This week saw the second round of games in the cup competition held at Manor park.
Our first game was against Hykeham Tiger Bees which after an excellent first half from the boys, going in 0-0 despite having some good chances they also showed great defending as a unit. The second half started with pressure from Hykeham with them taking an early chance. The Bombers responded straight back with a well taken goal by Loui Whittaker bringing us back level. The remainder of the half saw some good chances at both ends before Hykeham scored two quick goals in the last few minutes to record a 3-1 win. Again week after week the progression from the team has been a joy to watch. Thomas Faers took the MOTM in this game with some good attacks but also working hard to help defend.
Our second game was against Rushton Sports, again the boys played some brilliant football creating chances throughout the first half and not conceeding going into the break.The second half the boys had to defend a little more than in the first half, while still creating chances that they was unable to convert due to Rushtons keeper pulling off some good saves. The boys deserved more from this game than they ended up with as Rushton scored the winner in the third minute of added on time. Charlie Scott was MOTM in this game with some excellent defending.
As said before the boys progress this season has been a joy to watch and lets hope it continues in the final stages of the season. We have no fixture this weekend but we will be training as normal at Manor Park on Friday evening.
